Yes, Marijuana Is Still Illegal In Louisiana

Posted by Alex K. Kriksciun | Nov 05, 2018 | 0 Comments

I get a fair amount of calls from people who are either arrested or given a summons for possession of marijuana.   Many times on those calls I get a potential client on the other line expressing disbelief that marijuana possession is still illegal in Louisiana or expressing to me a desire to “f...

Bounty Hunting In Louisiana

Posted by Alex K. Kriksciun | Oct 25, 2018 | 0 Comments

I had a somewhat negative recently experience with a group of bounty hunters, or (as they like to call themselves), “bail recovery agents” or “fugitive recovery agents.”  I'm not going to get too into what happened, but it should suffice to say that the bounty hunters arrested my client and too...

Vote Yes On Constitutional Amendment #2!

Posted by Alex K. Kriksciun | Oct 18, 2018 | 0 Comments

I have written about this before, but with Election Day less than a month away, I thought it bore repeating. This fall, Louisiana voters will have the ability to right a historic wrong.  In forty-eight other states (Oregon being the other lone exception) and in federal courts across the countr...

A Prosecutor "Going Rouge" in Kansas City

Posted by Alex K. Kriksciun | Jun 15, 2018 | 0 Comments

Somebody sent me an article recently from a blog called The Root, which was founded in part by famed Harvard University professor Henry Louis Gates. The headline immediately caught my eye – “Evilest White Woman On Earth.”  The “evilest woman” referred to is a federal prosecutor named Terra Mor...

What I Do And My Promise(s) To You

Posted by Alex K. Kriksciun | Jun 08, 2018 | 0 Comments

I read an enlightening article recently on Above the Law, which for those who don't know, is an excellent legal blog and has been for years.  The article specifically dealt with Harvey Weinstein's prosecution in New York State for rape (he entered a not guilty plea to all charges earlier this w...

An End To Non-Unanimous Jury Verdicts?

Posted by Alex K. Kriksciun | May 18, 2018 | 0 Comments

Currently, there are only two states that allow for non-unanimous jury verdicts in criminal cases.  One is Oregon, which requires a vote of 11 out of 12 to convict in most felony cases (but not cases that are punishable by life in prison).   The other is Louisiana.  In certain felony cases, we ha...

I've obviously been slacking in my blog posts.  I wanted to expand on the previous post I made about what to do when you are stopped by police officers.   Here, I will offer some suggestions on how to treat, address, and otherwise “deal with” police officers. Please note that this list is not in...

What To Do If You Are Stopped By Police

Posted by Alex K. Kriksciun | Feb 02, 2018 | 0 Comments

I'd like to offer a slightly more “real-world” tilt to this post and to discuss my opinions as to what you should (and should not) do if stopped by the police.  After all, you don't want to end up like the guy above, right? There's a ton more I could say about this - but I did want to share th...

It's been awhile since I drafted a blog post.  My apologies, I've been extremely busy over the past month or so.  But, I'm back, so here we go: As previously discussed in this blog, Louisiana is currently the incarceration capital of the United States.  The United States is the incarceration cap...
